In plans drawn up by these groups, a trip will be planned every year for four years to limit the strain on participants family and financial resources. They also hope this strategy will entice younger riders to participate.
According to the report, the group plans to use the slogan:
“Experience the vastness of the world with your own body!”
I feel this is an apt description of any form of bicycle travel. When you remove the framing of a window, the world becomes an entirely different place.
The first leg of the journey kicks off in July when riders will be expected to pedal the Silk Road.
This type of activity is an excellent opportunity for Taiwanese to experience the world. If you have the time and money... it could be a great time.
